INVENTORY CHALLENGE #88-Tag card; or a card with a tag

Good morning!  Welcome to the Inventory Challenge.  Today we had to make a tag card or a card with a tag.  I choose to use the yummy new Tilda stamp from the newest collection, I believe it is called "Ships Ahoy Tilda".   First I set in the clouds using my new cloud kit I bought from a shop here in St. Louis, Missouri called The InkSpot.  The dp and accessories are from the Oceanside collection by Creative Imaginations.  The shells are something I found at my local Archiever's store and the tag was cut out using a die from Papertrey, Inc.  I bought the trim at a local fabric store and the twine was purchesed at another local store called The Checkered Cottage in Kirkwood, Missouri.  Boy do I love to shop! lol.   What I like most about this card is that it brings you to the beach.  I can just feel the sand in my toes and the hear the waves gently lapping against the shore.  I like the saying "Live in the Moment" because it is something I feel all of us should be doing more of.  Slow down.  Savor this moment-you will never get it back! 
Check out Kathy's blog while you are surfing the web to see her entry!  Love, Elle www.kathysknook.blogspot.ca



Here is a picture of the tag.  I love how it turned out!  The simpilicty is what I like the most.

Great Card! You've colored Tilda so beautifully! All of your little details are great. I really like the papers you've chosen and that fabric/lacy thing behind the picture. I was just on a cruise and think these would be perfect for my album cuz the whole card eminates the feel I'm looking for.
